I've received the following interesting e-mail.

Jannis: Do you think you could follow up with Dinesh? I think a light weight
"xfce4 documentation browser" would be beneficial to everyone instead of
having to launch firefox or some other web browser. :)

Subject: Want to contribute to - Xubuntu Documentation Browser
To: cody-somerville at ubuntu.com

I am interested in contributing to the Xubuntu Documentation Browser;

On the wiki page of the Xubuntu/Specifications/Gutsy/DocumentationBrowser
you have made a couple of suggestions (to quote you : "Would it be possible
to render from docbook using http://docutils.sourceforge.net/ - if yes,
consider benchmarking to see which is faster & lighter? --
05:46:51" )

I am keen on taking up the task -  by attempting the use of *docutils* for
generating the Xubuntu Documentation Browser.

How do I go about doing the same ? Could you please guide me - specifically
what I need to do.
Thank you.
